Appointments may be arranged by calling our office during the hours listed to the right. When you call our office for an appointment, briefly explain your eye problem to the receptionist so that the proper amount of time can be allotted for your appointment. Also, please tell the receptionist if you will require any special help for your visit. Typically, your first visit will take at least two hours and will consist of a complete eye examination. Your pupils will be dilated with eye drops during the exam. Your doctor will discuss the results of your exam, available treatment options and answer any questions you might have.
